Why Watch? Good news. The zombie invasion is over, and mankind kicked brain-eating ass. The bad news? The damned infection is still out there, and a few…problems…arise.
The zombie genre is all but played out for now, but the brilliance of this short is in turning the situation into a police drama. Instead of a terrorist with a bomb in a governmental building, it’s a zombie with an unknown strain of the virus in an apartment with a baby in the next room. It’s a study in what it means when failure is success, when losing lives is the right course of action, and the weight that bears.
Plus, everything from the camera work to the design is all pro level. Excellent work in twisting a tired genre.
What will it cost? Only 16 minutes.
